Ski tour to Mt Nevoso

Mount Nevoso (3.358 m asl) in the Valle di Riva is a challenging and highly impressive spring ski tour.

We start this ski tour at 6 am in the morning in Riva di Tures at the mountain tavern Säge (1,591 m asl). We traverse a bridge and continue on the path n° 8 until we reach a junction after about half an hour (1,800 m asl). From here the path leads into the forest, on a steep path (very exhausting if it is icy) we overcome this stage (ski crampons advisable). Soon the forest clears up and the Roma mountain hut (2,274 m asl) is visible.

At this point we turn off to the right and walk up the moderately steep slope in zigzag. We reach a rather flat hollow that is suitable for a short break, before we head for the valley stretching directly at the foot of the Mt Nevoso. The summit is visible but is not as near as it seems. Now we tackle the first steep slope, the huge of powder snow make walking rather exhausting. The slopes become steeper and steeper, until we reach a saddle (3,120 m asl). Keeping to the right, we overcome the glacier and reach the crest of the Mt Nevoso, where also the ski deposit is located (3,320 m asl). Caution in the last stage, only advisable to highly experienced mountaineers!

On foot, along the exposed crest, you can reach the highest point of Mt Nevoso (3,358 m asl), providing an amazing view of the Vedrette di Ries mountain range with Mt Collalto, Mt Collaspro and other high mountains. Back to the ski deposit, the fantastic ride down starts. As we would like to stop at the hut, we keep to the right in the lower stage, the hut is visible when skiing down. We traverse the little bridge and ride down to the Roma mountain hut. The way down from the mountain hut to the valley is less amusing, ask for the current conditions at the mountain hut.

Please note: difficult spring tour that requires good skiing and alpine techniques both ways. Absolutely secure conditions required. Ask at the mountain hut before you start! Great grounds for skiing and a fantastic panorama.
